Can I get something better than the "Samsung UN46D7000" for the price? (1400)

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I was thinking about the "Samsung UN46D6000" for 950 at Best Buy, but it doesn't have 3D, web browser (which could be useful if stream flash video, as my wife watch a reality show from Brasil), also the picture quality is better on the D7000, the D7000 also comes with wi-fi build in.

My question is this, what are my other options for the price range ~1400 I would like to stay at this price cause I'll have also to get a wall full motion mount so for now everything will come about 1500~


I really like the Samsung design the only thing I hear about them is that it's a edge lit TV so people complain about it, other than that it has everything that I'm looking for.

Also does the web browser really works like a pc browser or is it limited? I have seen people running video from youtube, but I would like to know if it can stream video in flash.

so what else could I get that would be a better option?

Thanks

The UN46D6500 is the entry level 3D/Wifi set from samsung which retails for 1399.99.

The LG 47LW6500 is a much better TV. In stores it ranges from 1149 to 1249. Amazon has it for 1040.
This is the passive type of 3D TV. It comes with 4 pairs of glasses and additional pairs are dirt cheap ($10 a pair)
1080p, 3D, wifi, 240hz, smart tv.

Regards to the streaming part. All smart TVs have a dedicated youtube app, as is the case with all streaming services (netflix, hulu, vudu, etc)
The only thing the samsung has over the LG is that the browser supports flash 10 vs 8 which seems to be a big point because your wife streams a foreign show.

My suggestion? Buy a WIS09ABGN with the 6000 which makes it wireless and live without 3D. (Active glasses are expensive anyways)
This will save you the money for your cantilever mount.

Thank you for your input... I'm looking at the Lg now and seen to be a really good tv as well, I'm going to check on the reviews and all. Now the UN46D7000 is retailed at 1400 from amazon which is better than the UN46D6500... but the LG seens to have everything except for the web like you said... which maybe I could hook her laptop to it. I'm going to do some research on the LG now.

Thanks for the help so far.

Better option, but the 6000 and use a laptop instead of the "smarthub" :P

The browser is limited, more functional than a smartphone browser, but more limited than a PC browser, and there is also a good chance that your wifes show may be in a codec that the flash player of the browser doesn't support.

 

My advice: Get a $1000 TV and a netbook to use for your streaming/apps. Much more versitile, and if your not afraid of plasma, can be done with sammy active shutter glasses with a larger tv (51") @ 30$ a piece.

Try your luck here... check the website credentials etc - might be a scam:

Other than that, try to get the UN46D7900 around $1500ish.
Check how it looks at Best Buy.
